Snow in Saint-Germain-des-Prés

With a sledding run, a ski simulator, an authentic sauna and a snow-filled jardin de neiges for the kids, everyone can get into the mountain spirit. Fortify yourself with a beer or hot chocolate and some fondue at one of the pop-up chalets, and enter the lucky draw for a chance to win station passes, cinema tickets, and even a vacation to one of France’s many top-notch ski resorts. A winter wonderland awaits you!
